Our eighth-grade son has attended the GreenMount School since kindergarten and we couldn't be happier with the school. Small class sizes were a major factor, as teachers are able to give each student what they need to be successful. I especially appreciate the school's thematic approach to learning. It allows students to dive deep into a subject and apply all of their skills -- writing, math, science, etc. -- to learning about a specific topic, culminating in a theme event where kids get to demonstrate what they have learned. Most importantly, GreenMount is about community. Each parent contributes to the school's operation and success, and in the process develops deep relationships with faculty, students and parents. GreenMount kids leave well prepared for high school, having gained a lifelong appreciate and love of learning.

From the first day of kindergarten, GreenMount has instilled a love of learning in my kids (now 7th and 8th grades) that seems endless and contagious. Tying core classes such as math, science, and language arts to different themes each trimester has been a fantastic way to get them to learn and get them excited to learn. I think they know more about art history, middle east politics, and America during the Revolutionary War than I do!

We are wrapping up our first year at Greenmount. This school has been exactly what my Kindergartner needed in a primary school. The small class sizes, the individual attention each staff member pays to every student, and the focus on the whole child is unmatched. The community is very supportive, the teachers are well trained, and the kids are smart in general education and the real world application of everything they learn.

As soon as we visited The Greenmount School, I knew it was where I wanted my child to go. Now that we are nearing the end of our first year, I can definitely say it was the perfect fit! From the small class sizes, to the amazing teachers and staff, and involved community of parents, we have had nothing but great experiences. Kindergarten at The Greenmount School is really about laying the groundwork for future learning and letting kids develop a love for learning, as well as confidence in the classroom. It has been an amazing process to watch my child (and her classmates) grow so much during this past year, but socially and academically. We can not wait to see what the next 8 years brings!

Greenmount has been a wonderful school for my 7th grader. He's gained so much confidence, the multi-disciplinary curriculum interests him and he understands the relevance of what he's learning in a way that keeps him engaged. Great community, excellent teaching, smart kids!
